First of all yes this is an older hotel. Yes the building is old, some of the furnishings and fixtures are older. But that's why it's priced where it's at. When do you ever get a hotel now for under $100??? You can really tell that management is trying very hard to offer quality accommodations at a budget price. Well...

We stayed two nights here and were not very impressed with the condition of the place. We've stayed here many times before and the condition is going down hill a bit every time. The carpet in the room we were in is badly in need of a good cleaning or replacement. There were 4 small cob webs hanging from the...

We had Leah check us in. She was amazing! You could tell she had a bit going on as she was dealing with a complaint of sewage. She didn't hesitate dealing with the problem! We will be back! Love your customers and they will love you back.

Wow. This hotel is absolutely disgusting in the outside rooms. I had previously stayed here on the inside, nothing special but must be newer and have a different maid, or maybe it's all gone down the drain since I stayed here last. However, upon checking in, the front desk talked me into staying in their outside rooms because "there's parking...

Had a stop over here on our way South and it was a great find! was clean and Front desk was so nice and helpful! Breakfast was bagels and waffles, but it was nice and clean and fresh. Only complain is the bathrooms are very small, so bigger people might have a issue in the one room we were in

We were given a recently renovated room, which was still not quite completed, at the rear, which was okay except for neighbors banging doors. The reception area had a musty smell from the indoor pool. We would've loved to use the pool if it wasn't for the overwhelming chlorine smell. Breakfast was not the best, but better than nothing.

We stayed her for 6 nights on a recent trip to Calgary, we booked through a popular website, we tried calling the hotel directly to see if I could get the same rate right from them and could not so we went ahead and booked, for the price it's overall not a bad hotel, we were originally set up in...

We stayed at this hotel one night. We needed a place nearby to a two day series of medical appointments. The room was clean, the furnishings and fittings quite up to date for a budget motel. Parking was good, the breakfast was okay. No protein, except for boiled eggs, but otherwise pretty normal. We had a check-in glitch because the...

We stayed here for the convenience of being close to the eye doctor, and it was our 3rd visit. The staff are always exceptional with our requests, and have been very friendly. The room was spacious (ground floor), and the pool was never over-full. Beds were extremely comfortable. We will be back again!

THE GOOD Great Location close to major routes, fast to Spruce Meadows, Glenmore SW, and lots of good restaurants nearby. A fantastic pool/hot-tub area, super clean but a bit too large for us and somewhat overwhelming with a viewing area from the lobby…. Front office reception staff were excellent during our entire stay including check-in and check-out. Room well provided...
